In one of the final drills of Day 8 of Denver Broncos training camp, head coach Vance Joseph wanted to see how the team responded to field goal coverage if a missed kick was returned out of the end zone. Instead, Brandon McManus nailed it.
“That’s a true weapon. That’s amazing,” Joseph said of the kick. “That was what, 73 yards. In the first one, he just swung his leg and he was two yards off. The second one he said, ‘I’ll make it for you this time.’ He swung it - that’s special.”
I doubt Joseph will try this in a game, but a 60-yarder? Maybe now it is on the table.
